This came in from Matt Kochis as a comment on another post. Thought I should post it here as a potential session proposal, though I take it Matt is looking for whether someone else could lead such a session.
“Hey all. Can we have a session on how to evaluate digital humanities projects? Particularly, I’m interested not only on critiquing faculty projects but, more important, how to criticize and grade student projects. At a recent conference I attended this summer, I sat in on a round table discussion on Digital Humanities and Pedagogy. At the end of the session, I asked the panel participants what the range of grades were on their students’ work. None of them gave less than an A. This seems very problematic. I was hoping that we can discuss best practices and rubrics.
